ARCHER AND THE CAPTAIW,x Fred Archer "fell out with Captain Machell over the mare Queen Bee, whose poor display cost Peck, Archer and the captain a lot of money. It was toward the close of the Houghton week. It is said both Peck and Archer had 1,000 on, and Captain Machell was one of the few let into the know. As luck would have it. Queen Bee, with Archer up, was beaten by n short head. The captain, rumor has it, heard something that led him to believe lie had been "put away," and on meeting Archer he threw up his hands and said, "Save me from my friends." Archer was cut to the quick, having lost his money, and lie declined to see Captain Machell when he called.
